Re: Early 80's Ludwig Restoration Complete
It was in incredible shape for its 30+ years. Some slight pitting on the rims but all the other chrome was a 9 out of 10. I took them down to the shells, checked the springs and inserts, touched up some small nicks on the bearing edges, polished the chrome and red cortex with some cleaner wax and reassembled. A one day job. Awesome find for $500 considering I was going to spend around $2,000+ for a new Ludwig Classic kit.
